Re: Input dataset contains double precision data...

To avoid this message you need to convert your variables to have a lower precision before sending them to MLwiN. If this is possible without losing accuracy then the Stata command http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?compress will perform the conversion for you, otherwise you will need to reduce the precis...

Re: Modelling Count Data (example do-file) - mismatch error

I have just tried this example here and it appears to work fine for me. Could you check that your version of Stata and runmlwin are up to date? If you still have problems could you run the command: set trace on before running the example and then post the output just before the error occurs? Could y...

Re: MLwiN fails to open after changing the default worksheet

It may be that the trial wrapper isn't passing on the command to MLwiN. You can test this with the command option "mlwin /help". If it doesn't display a list of possible options then this is the case. An alternative way to reset the size is to copy the following into a text file called &qu...

Re: Error code: r(-1073740777);

If it doesn't work with the examples either, but does work if you give it the Stata data sets directly then it's possible that MLwiN does not have access to where Stata is storing the temporary data set that it passes to MLwiN. To check this look at the path it is using (the part after RSTA and befo...

Re: Error code: r(-1073740777);

Assuming that you have tried some of the examples in the runmlwin help and they worked then there is no reason that the networked Stata should behave differently with the standalone MLwiN for this model. If the problem is occurring when MLwiN is being run then you might try the following: 1) Add vie...

Re: Error code: r(-1073740777);

At what point are you getting the error? I.e. Is this before MLwiN has been run or when the results are being brought back? If it gets as far as loading MLwiN does the equation for the model look as you expect, and does the loaded data look correct? Could you type the following in Stata before runni...

Re: error message

In that case there are a few options that might help: 1) Remove variables that are not in the model from the worksheet. This will mean that there is more available space to store the MCMC chains. 2) Resize the worksheet straight after opening MLwiN. This will increase the likelihood that it can find...

Re: error message

You may be setting the worksheet size too high as the value that you enter is in terms of thousands of cells. You can get a rough estimate of what to set the worksheet size to from the following FAQ page:

Re: Deleting cases

MLwiN handles data differently to SPSS in that rather than assuming that the data is rectangular with a row per case and a column per variable it instead allows columns of different length and only requires that columns in the model have the same length. It is therefore possible that you only remove...

Re: MCMC estimation

This has moved into the level() sub options so now has the following form:
